I knew I would marry my wife a month into our relationship – Ebuka Obi-Uchendu


Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, a popular television broadcaster, revealed how he met his wife and how they ultimately began conversing.

During a recent guest visit on the podcast Menisms, Ebuka spoke openly about his journey to become the well-known TV anchor he is today.

He said that he struggled to get started on Big Brother Naija before being given the opportunity to host it.

The well-known media personality also discussed how he met his wife and their following conversational starts.

Ebuka stated that, while his wife, Cynthia, wanted to spend time with him, she didn’t fully understand his demanding work schedule when they initially started dating.

He revealed that he knew she was the one he wanted to marry quite early, even with his busy work schedule.

“I feel like my wife came at the right time because she came when things started picking up for me. I did see a few exes along the way but after my long-distance breakup, I didn’t get into anything committed until I met my wife because I wasn’t in the headspace for it. When work started I was intentional about building this thing and enjoying my life on the streets until it became serious. I didn’t have any moments where I was dating until my wife.

“I knew her 3 years before we became a thing and we were both in relationships. I was friends with her brother and we followed each other on Twitter. Then on Jan 1st 2014, I sent a ‘Happy New Year’ message. At this time I had been single for almost 2 years and she responded, and that’s how we started.

“She was in HR and from a quiet world. I was working at Ebony Life and the studio was in Calabar so I used to go there two times a month for six days each. At the time our relationship had just started so she didn’t get it initially. So it took a lot of explaining for her to understand. The interesting thing is a month into our relationship I knew we were going to get married. I don’t know what it was, but I think a lot of it was the conversations we were having,” he said.

The pair became engaged in April 2015 after an intimate proposal at Sakura, a Japanese restaurant on Lagos’ Victoria Island, and married in November of same year.

They have now brought two lovely children, Jeweluchi and Irubinachi into the world.
